Difference between Evaporation and Vaporization

Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the difference between Evaporation and Vaporization. Comparison and Differences.


Evaporation is the term used to define the change in phase of a liquid to gas. When this change in phase occurs below the boiling point it is categorized as evaporation.


Vaporization is the term used when a liquid changes its phase to gaseous phase. And evaporation is a type of vaporization.

Difference between Evaporation and Vaporization

S.No. Evaporation Vaporization
1 Evaporation is the process by which liquid changes to its vapors at a temperature below its boiling point. Vaporization is the process by which liquid changes to its vapors at its boiling point.
2 Takes place at all temperatures. Takes place at only fixed temperature i.e. its boiling point temperature.
3 Temperature may changes during evaporation. Temperature during vaporization does not change.
4 It is a slow and silent process. It is a fast and violent process.
5 Evaporation takes place only at surface of liquids. Takes place over the entire mass of the liquid.
